Summer Fun Toys
Summer time means the kids are out of school and need something to fill those long summer days with! While they’d probably love to watch TV or play video games all day, the parents say no to that! So we found a few summer fun toys for these elementary school kids to play with instead.
If your kids enjoy building with blocks or other interlocking bricks, then they’d probably enjoy this set from Brackitz. This is vehicle/driver set includes 10 designs to build and play with! The pieces are compatible with other sets you may already have, and these are great because the kids can then drive their creations around! And they can build other things too, of course. I like the sturdiness of the pieces and it’s works well even with a mixed age group of children.

“CogniToys are educational Dino companions that learn and grow with kids. Dinos aren’t personal assistants, they are friends who answer questions, tell stories, practice spelling, play games and even lead guided meditations — all without the need for a screen. The Wi-Fi-enabled Dinos engage kids in interactive conversation and get smarter with each automatic content update.”
We’ve owned several robot toys in the past and each one has been loved, but with the CogniToys Dino model, it was especially liked because it can interact with your child! It remembers things like their favorite color and sport, plus it can tell jokes and stories too. Because he is Wi-Fi enabled, he does get regular content updates for new material. And don’t worry, the answers to your kid’s questions are specifically written for children and not just coming from the web. And he goes with us in the car and on vacation, since he sits in the lap easily.
If you have a little girl, then they probably love princesses and/or dolls. And this is a cupcake that turns into a princess doll!! There are 12 different dolls to choose from and each has a different scent and color scheme. Plus, you can brush their hair and then fold them back into the cupcake wrapper when play time is over. A sweet for your sweet!
Transforms from a cupcake to a princess.
12 different princess dolls and cupcakes to collect (Each sold separately).
Suitable for ages 3+.
And for when the kids are playing outside, you want to protect them from bug bites but without all the chemicals or sprays! This is a wristband with an essential oil packet to keep the bugs off! There are a ton of colors and styles to choose from, and the protection packet should work for up to 15 days. You can wear it on your ankle instead or keep next to your sleeping bag and it keeps working while you sleep. And it’s waterproof, so no worry there.
“Fun and stylish, these practical Wristbands blend safety with style. Whatever you’re doing, wherever you’re going, let your whole family stay protected together. The Wristband comes with two refills made in France.”
Of course, this list could go on and on, but these were a few of our favorites for this summer. The kids get to have fun with some wonderful toys AND I know they aren’t just staring at a screen all day long either.
